My mom taught me all kinds of things as I grew up that I feel so lucky to know...sewing, crochet, knitting and many other things. I appreciate all that she gave to me. I can't imagine my life without those things.
I have a tiny rocking chair that I remember sitting in as a child and crocheting. When my daughter was little, I taught her to crochet and she sat in that same chair. I have a picture of it somewhere.
As she grew up, I taught her how to knit, spin, weave, sew, cook...basically, everything I could. I've always enjoyed teaching her these things and doing them with her. Those basic skills have been blossoming this past year. She's gone from knowing how to do those things to loving to do those things. She's sewn some amazing clothing. She's a great cook. And, now, she knitting LACE! I'm so proud and excited! Check out her latest blog post HERE. Be sure to say, "hi" and leave a comment while you're there. :-)
